Wasim Jaffer slyly attacks an English journalist about Deepti Sharma-Charlotte Dean

It looks like the run-out controversy isn’t going away anytime soon. While Deepti Sharma said Dean received several warnings for leaving the crease, the England cricketer refuted the claim, saying she received none.

Can anyone beat Wasim Jaffer when it comes to witty tweets? We do not think so. And her latest tweet about the Deepti Sharma and Charlotte Dean controversy is just another example. In the third ODI between India and England on Saturday, September 24, Deepti Sharma stopped in the middle of his bowling action and pulled the bails on the non-attacking side, sending Dean back to the flag. The run-out led India to seal a 3-0 shutout against England.

Several current and former players have since dissected the incident, delivering their own verdicts on the controversy. English cricketers and media have heavily criticized Deepti for his antics. Giving it back, Wasim Jaffer shared his take on the controversy and we could sense a lot of the sarcasm. The former Indian cricketer decided to poke fun at the English media and players using an incident from a cycle race.

Journalist Ian Fraser had shared a video explaining how “Italian cyclist Michael Guerra decided to use a board while riding to use the advantage of aerodynamics to overtake his opponents”. Retweeting the video, Jaffer said an English cyclist would never have done such a thing, even if it was in the regulations. He wrote: “It may be in the rules, but it is against the spirit of cycling. I would never do it,” said an English cyclist.

It looks like the run-out controversy isn’t going away anytime soon. While Deepti Sharma said Dean received several warnings for leaving the crease, the England cricketer refuted the claim, saying she received none.

Notably, the Marylebone Cricket Club – which is the guardian of the laws of cricket – had earlier this year removed this method of dismissal from the ‘foul play’ section of their laws and added it to the ‘exhaustion’ section. The ICC is expected to adopt the change from October 1.
